The Tecnocrats would be an enemy faction, fanatically opposed to any sort of biologic or mystical super powers,
they believe that people with those abilities are unnatural and a blight on the world, so to speak.
They believe that any superhuman abilities should be achieved only by technology and scientific advancements.

They call people who have these abilities through non-scientific means "the superannuated"

The faction only uses tech abilities (obviously) and i would imagine them to be a sort of guerrilla military group with large weaponry and grenade-type projectiles, they would have their faces entirely covered and be clad in mostly white with hints of silver on arm guards and weapons, they would also have a symbol of some sort on their chests in a bright red color.

Their main goal is to remake society by wiping out all traces of super powered beings that aren't made by technology, all traces even includes villains, so the faction would intertwine with both the hero and villain quests at points.

yeah i feel they could
they'd probably be like the grunts though, isn't there a gadget class though, because that's more what i was thinking when i wrote it

This type of group could be the token, highly annoying type with suppression field technology... :)

Field suppression makes sense for them actually, especially if it disabled a power slot temporarily or something

the optic reminds me a bit of crusaders
which going with the thought kind of makes sense too
maybe the Elite of it could be called Inquisition ;)?

When I hear the word Technocrats I think of the British hierarchy. So since it takes place on a ship what if it had a similar rank system as the British navy. The top dog could be the Admiral and then vice admiral, commodore and so forth. And also I think they’d work better as not villains but a group that wants best for normal civilians on the ship and they kind of look at powered heroes in a sort of disgust similar to the mutants in X-men. So maybe on certain areas where they have military styled based heroes aren’t necessarily welcomed unless you have some sort of technological background. Maybe their is even a secret evil sect hidden amongst there ranks that have a sort of techno magical background. A power similar to magneto that is inanimate based being able to construct different weapons, shielding , etc with there mind from metal around them. Call them Mechromancers.They could have some super evil scheme to take over the ship and the military ends up needing help from heroes and from there you can build a relationship with them. So the technocratic army could be used as villains at lower levels and at higher levels as the story arc continues they would be seen as allies more so.

That sounds like a great idea but how many would we have to collect or would it be the same 800 like the shards

Would be a fun faction, especially if it flirted the lines between legal and illegal. Like its a legit political movement, but they secretly carry out anti magic and mutant 'hate crimes' lol
Kind of like how Lex Luther can be legit and evil at the same time.
